Very good. My 9" regular pie dish only fit two layers, not three, so I will use less ground beef next time.

Delish!!!! A must try! The only thing i didn't add to the recipe is cumin as I ran out but it came out incredible. Love the sweet potato in it!

Have now made this about a dozen times. I use whatever leftover meat I have: pulled pork, BBQ chicken, etc...it just gets better with every attempt. Just made for guests and they loved too and asked for recipe. This may be my favorite recipe ever.

Awesome!! I left out the tortillas and it was incredible. So easy, so quick. I was hesitant to make this, seemed like an odd combination of ingredients, but it turned out great. I will make this again for sure!
